Stanley Oliver Jones, 100, of Ottawa, Ontario passed away at the Ottawa General Hospital January 28, 2017.

He enjoyed genealogy, playing chess, watching comedies on TV, skiing, cycling, swimming, steam and model trains, whale watching and, most of all, his family. A particular love was his grandchildren, Trevor, Byron and Melanie from his son Russell and, his wife, Julia Sandquist. He liked to say that: “children are the investment and grandchildren are the dividends”.
He is also survived by his son Peter of Montreal, sister Dorothy Reynolds of Cardiff, Wales, his nephews, Oliver Reynolds, Blake Reynolds and his wife Linda (Robson), their children, Mark and Helen, Mark’s children Freddie and Beatrix, Helen’s children Ellie, Joshua and Noah. Stan’s niece, Juliet Reynolds in Cardiff, her children Tabitha and Emma, Tabitha’s child Reuben and Emma’s child Leon as well as in-laws Betty, Stuart, Vanessa and Kirk, now in Australia and in-laws across Canada and Europe.
His sense of humour and delight in bringing a smile to friends, family and acquaintances will be missed.

Keith D. Phinney, age 70, died on Saturday, February 11, 2017, at the QEII Infirmary in Halifax, N.S.

Keith was born in Ottawa on November 25, 1946. He graduated from Hillcrest High and went on to study Chemistry at Carleton University in Ottawa, later completing a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick. Over his career, he occupied senior positions at Montreal Engineering in Fredericton, CH2M Hill in Vancouver, and ADI & Associates in Halifax. He often gave in to his entrepreneurial spirit, working independently as a consulting engineer. He had a love of teaching and embraced opportunities to provide instruction in environmental science. An expert in his field, he was passionate about his work and was engaged in several projects at the time of his passing.

A person of unmatched integrity in his professional and personal relationships, Keith was sought for his advice and generously offered his time to others as a mentor, cub scout leader, church warden and volunteer. Recently, he brought his sensible, no-nonsense approach to bear as a member of the Mining Association of Nova Scotia, the Minister’s Round Table on Environment and Sustainable Prosperity (NS), and the American Water Works Association. He campaigned tirelessly during the last municipal election.

Keith was known for his quick wit and sense of humour and saw comedy in almost any situation. His laugh was infectious and could be heard for miles. An energetic, vital guy, he was happiest when cycling, canoeing, skating, skiing, camping with friends, and playing endless games of hide and seek with his beloved granddaughter.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Karen (nee Hewitt), daughter Catherine (Mike Blanchette), son Dave (Donna Hohertz), and granddaughter Isla Grace; his sister Cheryl (Robert Benson) and brother Wayne (Sandra); many nieces and nephews, and cherished friends and colleagues.

He put his arms around you
And whispered ‘Come to Me’
He didn’t like what you went through
And he finally gave you rest
His garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best
And when we knew you were sleeping
So peaceful and free from pain
We wouldn’t wish you back
To suffer that endless pain again
So as you take your final rest
Now we can say goodbye
Rest well Nancy, our sweet Sister
